Looking back at Holybrook Festival 2017
Welcome to Holybrook Festival - 2017 download. It was wonderful to see so many families and friends enjoying an afternoon out at Holybrook’s annual community event.
Did you know that the money raised from the Festival activities is ploughed straight back in to fund the following year? This means that the free activities can continue to be offered ensuring that the Festival remains an affordable event for all.
Amongst the regular favourites; Circus Scene, Big Foot the Clown, K9 Planet Dog Show and Kick-Fit, we were glad to welcome, Owen’s Animals with his creepy crawlies and snakes, Outdoor Academy offering archery and disc golf, Reading Rockets with their basketball game, and finally, Junk Percussion. All of whom were well received. In addition, Pro-cision Football Coaching ran a fantastic inter-school football tournament.
This year our chosen charity was ‘Daisy’s Dream’ whom we were delighted to support. Thank you to each of you that kindly donated by putting money in their buckets.
We had interesting and varied stalls and were delighted to welcome some new additions including: British Beekeepers, RNLI, Sainsbury’s Singers and Mini Professors (who demonstrated some amazing science experiments).
Finally, there are too many people to thank individually. But, hopefully, you know who you are! Without you all this event would not be possible so, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

New committee members are always welcome and volunteers are also needed to make the day run smoothly. The Holybrook Festival is a fantastic opportunity for you to get involved in your local community. If this is something that you would be interested in why not come along to one of our meetings.
For more information on how you can help the Holybrook Festival please contact the Parish Office on 0118 9 454 339 and ask for Caroline.
The Holybrook Festival is held in the Linear Park each summer. It has become a landmark event and important resource for local community groups and charities to raise funds and awareness. But, more importantly, it is an event that stemmed from the original Holybrook Parish Plan where all the different areas of our large and diverse community can come together and share a fun filled day.
